That is a great looking piece, but I have a feeling the price tag is going to be through the roof.
From the reference picture it's the better part opf 17-18 inches tall which is twice the size of a warhound titan. Plus the rex has a lot more bulk in the legs and body. Even if it's just a raw resin kit it'd probably cost 3 times what a warhound does, as when you go up in size the volume of resin used is about 4 times as much (not just twice as much)
The figure in lighting effects and painting, OMG you are talking some huge number. I'm thinking this is going to be well over $1k at minimum, probably in the $2k-$3k range. Most japanese resin kits make ForgeWorld look cheap.
They sell 12" action figures starting at $100+.... their site reeks of the phrase "if you have to ask how much it is then you obviously can't afford it".
Certainly would any nice to have one but I think for the average gamer this is going to be a pipe dream piece.
Well, this is simply the master; I THINK that the real deal will be plastic, but only time will tell. Having a definite measurement for once is very nice, though; we know that this one is going to be big enough to field! And a little digigng on Wikipedia found that it's based out of Hong Kong, not Japan, so we'll see if that makes any difference when production begins.
